Major leak and miss measured

Postby FMLFML85 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 5:22 pm

Just got done with my consultation for a implant with dr Eid. He performed a penile Doppler and it showed a MAJOR leak. One year ago I had the same test administered and had good results, no indication of a leak. The only thing I think I can blame this on is the trimix injections I started 6 months ago. The doctor did the stretch test on my flaccid penis and got a measurement of 16 cm. I showed him a picture I took at home showing 21 cm and he redid the stretch test after injecting my penis and got a measurement of 17.5. The injection produced a floppy erection so I feel the measurement was flawed. He said that the implant will be between 25 - 26 centimeters long. I asked about being measured with the rods during surgery would come up with a different measurement and he said most likely not. At this moment I wish I never tried trimix.

If the injection produced a floppy erection, I would suspect the injection was flawed, not the measurement.

Was Er. Eid the doctor who did both the stretch tests and the injection? His reputation is such that he is thorough, exacting and conscientious. A floppy erection from injection would (I think) elicit concern on his part. In any event, it is the interior measurement that dictates the size of the implant and ultimate size of the erected implanted penis. Having said that, the stretch test (administered by an expert) is usually a fairly accurate prediction.

Do you have access to a vacuum erection device with a transparent tube? That might provide some more information. My (inside the tube) measurement was about 1/2" longer than my best erection (before or after my implant). I suspect the extra 1/2" is not to be relied upon as a result of the vacuum, not tissues or structure. But if you get anything approaching 23cm (under vacuum), I would expect 21cm post-implant or be disappointed. Further discussion with your surgeon seems warranted.

How long ago was the aforementioned 21cm picture taken and under what conditions of erection?

Thanks for the response. Yes dr eid did the injection and stretch test. He did not seem to be worried that the erection was floppy. He asked if my erection allways pointed downward at 5:30 and I said it pointed straight out from my body if properly stimulated. I do have a vacuum device but my penis dosnt really react when using it, maybe because of how bad my venous leak is apparently. Hopefully dr Eid is aggressive when doing the internal measurement. He said he has had a few clients ask for their penises to be shortened but said that would be impossible to do because it would cause them floppy head syndrome.

All I get from injections is a floppy erection, no matter what the dosage or strength is.
The stretch test is a variable thing. I get different results when I check. I think the best is always after I pump to get it stretched first. I am looking forward for an implant but have to get the wife on board first. You have a great doctor, trust him! :D

I think it is possible to shorten. Essentially a reverse of the lengthening surgeries that involve cutting the tunica in such a way that part can be "slid" lengthways and then stitched up for healing. Just go the other direction. Not always successful, though.

Another surgery for lengthening is insertion of a silicone prosthetic called a "penuma" which is now approved by the FDA.

But what puzzles me is what man would desire to be shortened? If he is so long as to present a storage problem, maybe, or a significant other at risk of injury from over-enthusiastic penetration?

What is the connection between injections and a venous leak?
Born 1948, married 1969. BPH & Type II Diabetes at age 35. TURP-2002; Some ED even before that. Cardiac valve surgery-2007. ED from diabetes. Poor results with pills. Started trimix injections in Nov, 2010. Great results from the very beginning.

Antelope I personally haven’t heard of a connection. I just don’t know what else could be the cause. I’m a health active 34 year old. To go from normal blood flow to “major venous leak” in a year has left me dumbfounded. I know im being petty when I argue about my length to the dr but I just feel like losing over a inch is just another kick in the teeth. He didn’t press the ruler into my pubic region at all, let alone was it “bone pressed”. The worst part of it was that I was floppy as shit and when he “stretched” my head away from my body, he did it so lightly as if it was cooked pasta he did not want to break.

Vajim1 I’m the same way. The stretch test allways comes out with different numbers unless I get a solid erection. If I do the test with no erection/trimix it’s like I’m pulling on beef jerky. To actually get a solid erection I need stimulation porn or my partner, and even with those it only lasts minutes.

I really appreciate you guys listening to me bitch. I still want dr Eid to be my surgeon but I might voice my concerns with him again before surgery. Maybe I will take another picture of my length but with a tape measure this time without presssing into my pubic region.

Do you guys think I could talk dr Eid into remeasuring prior to surgery? I would like to inject trimix instead of caverject. I can still get a erection with trimix if I use a ring but with cacerject it’s just a big flaccid. I remeasured with tape just now and without pushing into my public region in getting 19-20 cm. I might potentially lose a inch because the caverject has little effect.

Yes, yes, I do. But really, it may not be necessary. Talk to him and he may well explain (in detail if you are non-queazy enough to stand the details) just how the measurements are done and the implant fitted.

I found Dr. Eid to be a caring individual who, if you demonstrate competent knowledge of the subject and of yourself and your desires, will listen to you and meet your concerns.

(see my PM for more detail)

Express that you feel the caverject did not give him an adequately accurate representation of your penis' capacity for size and rigidity. Share your unease with him and I am certain, he will take it from there.
